About Rita

When I married my husband, he told me that he would support me for the first 25 years if I’d support him for the next 25. I kept my promise… almost. The day after our 25th wedding anniversary, I sold my first novel. Two days later, I sold my second. I never did actually support him, but I made my point.

I believe that my father, a man who told absurd tales with a straight face and a gleam of amusement in his blue eyes, honed my storytelling ability. I learned from both of my parents that laughter, as well as love, makes the world go around. I’ve always been a romantic at heart. My early years were spent reading every book I could get my hands on from the local library and re-plotting the endings of sad movies.

Because reading has always been such an important part of my life, I also became a literacy volunteer and for years I taught reading to those who had yet to discover the pleasures of a good book.

I am a happily married mother of two super sons, one incredible daughter-in-law and a superior grandson. I live with her husband in Northern Arizona.
